Vange, Essex

Vange is a former small village now subsumed within the urban area of the Basildon Borough of Essex. As it is much smaller than Basildon, Laindon and Pitsea, it does not have its own town centre or railway station. The London Road (B1464) is the main road through Vange and used to be part of the A13 till it was bypassed in the 1970s. Vange Hill Open Space is 30 acres of former plotlands lying next to Basildon golf course. Vange Marshes is a wetland habitat, including an RSPB reserve.
